SPRINGFIELD (WGGB) â€“ A day after the red flag warning expired here in Western Mass, conditions are still ripe for fires.
Around 3 this afternoon, Springfield fire fighters responded to commercial fire at 125 Paridon Street. Itâ€™s a manufacturing facility with a shop that deals with reclaimed wood. Fire officials say the fire started in the shop. They suspect a spark from the equipment might have set the wood on fire, assisted by dry conditions.
The business is a total loss and no injuries were reported.
